This one wasn't really a Christmas story and that's my bad. I liked Hayden and Dylan and together they worked for me. Unfortunately, their timing was lousy and in spite of how strongly he was attracted to Dylan, Hayden had a life he didn't feel he could walk away from. To me this gave him a sense of commitment and honour that people don't always have, but he wasn't perfect either his encounter with Dylan was betray of vows he's made to someone else and as fate with have it he had to live with that and it's not always easy living with the consequences of a mistake that you've willingly made. Don't get me wrong I'm in no way absolving him of what he did. I'm just saying that the fact that he did it tells me how strongly he felt for Dylan.
The person I felt the sorriest for in the end was Will.(show spoiler)
'Snowbound' ended up being a little more intense of a story than I had expected because it left me wondering if given the same set of circumstances what would I do? What would I want my partner to do under these circumstances? At what point do you let go because there's really nothing left to hold on to? I'd like to believe I know the answers to these questions for myself, but really do any of us know until the time comes for the decision? I for one hope I never have to find out.
